Wimsey Cove Framing and Art is a locally owned and operated quality custom residential and corporate art frame gallery that specializes in shadow boxes, conservation framing, specialized printing and historical maps of cities and states. Wimsey Cove Framing & Art, the go-to fine framing store, has developed a reputation for framing everything from large oval ceiling pieces to conservation framing for fragile textiles.

As Elizabeth Ramirez often says, “we enjoy the challenge of ensuring that the customer’s art, photographs, needlework, watercolors, sports memorabilia, antique prints or whatever is protected as well as being appropriately displayed. Every piece is special.”


Wimsey Cove is located in Edgewater, South Anne Arundel County MD just 2/10ths of a mile south of Mayo Road across from the old Giant Food just south of Annapolis, Maryland.

Local Maryland artists and photographers have limited edition prints on display at Wimsey Cove to purchase and frame.

Wimsey Cove Featured Artist – Katherine Carney

Katherine Carney is a painter who loves coastal life. She grew up on the coast of Rhode Island until she moved to the Eastern Shore of Maryland when she was eleven. Summers were spent playing with her Chesapeake Bay retriever, crabbing off the dock and sailing on the Tred Avon River. Living in the quiet town of Oxford, where her father was a marine biologist provided the perfect foundation for both her interest in marine life and her passion for art to thrive. Katherine attended the University of Maryland where she received a BS in Advertising Design

Having worked in advertising design, as well as painting decorative furniture, it wasn’t until early 2015 that Katherine finally decided to seriously listen to that little voice in her that called to her to return to painting on canvas.

Influenced by the scenes that surround her, Katherine’s subjects are varied, including landscapes, seascapes, shells, boats, botanicals, farms, and animals. Katherine recognizes she is a realist with an impressionistic view. She feels that less detail and more suggestion of, works best for her and gives her viewer a fresh perspective.

Other than painting, her hobbies include active sports like running, cycling, kayaking and of course – beaching. You can also find her husband, Lab Sophie and her, walking, exploring and enjoying the many Maryland and Delaware seashore parks.

Katherine is the winner of the 2016 Hospice Cup Poster Competition this March, and also received best in Houzz 2016 in January of 2016.


Historic Maps  

As of January 1, 2015, Wimsey Cove Maps & Art, formerly located in West Annapolis, has moved to Wimsey Cove Framing & Art.  The entire inventory of historical maps and bird’s eye views and related giftware is available at the new location.
Wimsey Cove Maps & Art was a “pop-up” store before such things were thought of.  Maps were first offered thirteen years ago at various street fairs and bazaars, including First Sunday on West Street, Oktoberfest in West Annapolis, and at meetings and conferences, including Archaeology Day at the Maryland Historical Trust. From July to December 2011, Maps & Art was located in the Market House on City Dock in Annapolis.  In the spring of 2013, we opened the store in West Annapolis and continued being a vendor at many Maryland events. This time, we have moved the map business back into its parent store, Wimsey Cove Framing & Art, while we look for new opportunities to “pop-up.”  Please come visit us.
